Running Games With Their "Minimum System Requirements"


With every game comes a list of minimum and recommended specs requirements. I’ve never really paid much attention to them, and usually just take to YouTube for information about how a game will run on certain hardware. But just for fun, we’ve taken a few games and ran them on hardware that matches their respective “minimum requirements” to see just how each one varies.

Games Tested:
Witcher 3
Just Cause 3
Grand Theft Auto V
Witcher 3
ARK Survival Evolved


Thanks for watching 🙂



  1. fallout 76 minimum specs:
    Core i5-6600K 3,5 GHz
    Gtx 780 3gb (2gb for amd)
    My pc:
    Core 2 quad q9300 (overlocked to 2.8 GHz)
    Gtx 650 1gb
    And what do you think? I got decent 30 fps with low textures and water quality, high shadows quality , and medium lightning quality and shadow distance
    That’s not stable 60, but more then playable

  2. The minimum requirements also noted a older windows version witch will use less ram and proccessor memory. You didnt test it with older windows versions

  3. I bought my brother a 1050ti because it should have run elite dangerous with his old i5-3340 and 8gb ram. It wouldn't run for crap. I next opened my toolbox [debit card] and bought him an Alienware Aurora R7 with i7-8700 16gb 2666 ram and 1080 non ti, and Elite Dangerous runs like a bat outta hell. $1400 was not such a bad investment for that prebuilt that runs virtually anything and will for probably another 5-7 years.

  4. the ark system requirements are an out right lie, even with a machine twice as good you'll still have issues. should be illegal as you could easily buy thinking your pc is good enough and obviously you'd have wasted your money. bit of a piss take imo

  5. So a Xeon E5450 (socket mod)+6GB DDR2 800 (possibly 8GB if I find more)+650ti 2GB @ 1366×768 is still very capable. Nice.
    Note to everyone, core 2 Extreme X6850 really are terrible in all areas compared to most 45nm uad cores.

  6. Really surprised just cause 3 ran that good, it runs like trash on console, probably bc it’s a cpu intensive game with all the explosions

  7. What games can I run?

    I got a free HP touchsmart 600 with 4gb ram (now 6gb) 450gb hdd and nVidia GeForce GT 230 1gb intel core 2 duo 2.00GHz? Anything playable? I play GTA IV at lowest settings with about 25-40 FPS and minecraft with optifine at about 90fps?? So what am I looking at here…?

  8. Try "Running games with much less than minimum requirements"
    Many years ago I gave a friend of mine Elder Scrolls Oblivion even though I knew he had a potato of a PC to run it. Minimum req's are P4 or AMD 2 Ghz, 512 RAM and GF FX5700 which he was nowhere near. It ran at an impressive 3 or so FPS for a couple of minutes before the PC overheated and shut down. 😀
    I myself have been running Black&White on a Voodoo2 card (fucking ugly!) and Diablo 3 on a cheap office computer from 2010 or so.
